Peace, in the midst of my Storm

It was a rainy season in Bali. It was day with constant rain and thunderstowm. One evening I was waiting for the sunset. I was a little bit hesitant that I would see anything, afterall the cloud was so thick, the beach is wet and empty. But lo and behold, the rain stopped and the cloud slowly move away.
As I took the photograph and strolling over empty beach enjoying the solitude, this song came to my mind.


When my way seems so dim and unclear
Jesus I’m glad I know you are near
Weary and worn from this life I live
I long for the peace that you give


Peace in the midst of my storm
Peace in the midst of my storm
Draw me close to thyself O Lord
And give me peace in the midst of my storm...

(Song by the Wilds Music)

Location : Legian Beach, Kuta


There are loads of unknown in my life at the moment. But the Lord reminded me that He is always near, He is only a prayer away. He never promise for problem free life. He never promise that he shield me from pain and disappointment. But He has promise His everlasting arm will always be there for me, and that he will hold me when I fall.

Whenever I'm in the middle of such marvellous sight, holy spirit fills me and I'll ponder upon His words too.

I'm sure that the Lord was trying to assure you of His presence, to remind you who HE is. He who made the heavens and everything, there's nothing in this world He can't resolve, or is too big for Him. Amen.
